But what are the alternatives?
(Closing PM down and "defecting" to SO? ;-)
Since you are rejecting the DB scheme, even building an new alternative MVC application on top of the data seems out of discussion, right?
And if you did this new MVC front end, it might take so long that new requirements would arise, not talking about all the additional legacy plugins which might get obsolete in the meantime.
I have a strategical point of view on the things, improving the design will bring the best and fastest return of investment ... politically, technically and from a marketing perspective.
And afterwards a long term strategy can improve the other issues you listed

That's my plan.
For me Toby's approach is "only" a prove of concept.
I plan to invest a week to improve it (in my own "dogfood" interest ;) after YAPC::EU, build a show case and try to convince the gods of a long term strategy.
